Broward County Humane Society and other random thoughts of an Animal Communicator

Broward County Humane Society Benefit

Animal Communication mini class

Last Thursday we did a big benefit for the Broward County Humane Society in Ft. Lauderdale at the Jessica Sydney showroom. It was a lovely place to host such an event. Amidst the gorgeous furniture (yes I found what I’d like next for my living room) were plenty of stations with various things like New Age Books & Things crystals with some crystal blankets for horses, dogs and cats by Claudia Carpenter. Central Bark Doggy Daycare had a wonderful booth on good foods and the Humane society also had their retail shop up and going and a great dog massage practitioner – Hope of Dog Massage by Hope had a booth there.  New Age Books & Things had a set up with my book and new cd’s so I got to sign lots of books before speaking. (Oh goody!)

The other great thing is they had an abundance of wonderful things donated for the raffle. I wanted a tropical dog bed that would of course become a kitten bed as well. I didn’t win. Oh well.

They had smart things donated like rug cleaning service (HELLO!) air duct cleaners (can you say dog hair), lots of basket by fancy pet boutiques, riding lessons by a wonderful horse trainer (lots of horsey peeps there) and much much more. 

All in all it was a great event – a lot of money and awareness was raised,  everyone had fun and the best was how happy the dog Sebastian was that he got to talk to the group during my mini class.

Lots of Animal Communication and other random thoughts……..

What a day. I had to either split myself in two, teleport myself, admit to a parallel universe or send students to an event that I couldn’t attend. I chose the latter. So I was at the Mill Creek Festival speaking and teaching Animal Communication and I sent two of my Communication with All Life University students to the Chihuahua Festival to talk to 300-400 Chihuahuas.

I had fun, I got to connect with every pet rescue whether it was a dog rescue, cat rescue, horse rescue, a pet business, pet services, dog trainers, holistic vets……people got to meet me – the local pet psychic or animal communicator. My students got a glimpse of my world – a day in the life of an Animal Communicator. I think they were stunned.

When you are studying Animal Communication, you set up a safe zone…..suddenly; there they were with literally hundreds of darling distractions, plus the people and whatever events were going on (i.e. agility, cute tail contests, etc.) So I’m very proud of how well my students performed while also taking in the fact that it ain’t all glamorous!!!!

For me, I got to watch the Dock Diving at the Mill Creek Festival. Quite entertaining. I wanted to come home and get my dogs and take them back there. As a matter of fact, it was so warm out, I was prepared to dock dive without dogs or winning any sort of award on my way out.

And as for my event, it was hot, it was short, but I taught some committed people. I love teaching…..the people did great for all of the distractions of a big event. The people did so well right off the bat that we got to talk to many animals even if for just one question. It was great fun.

So here I am, I am here. I love days like today where Animal Communication is so in demand…..where education on Animal communication is in demand. And truthfully, the more I can connect up with the pet rescues, the dog rescues, the cat rescues, the horse rescues, all of the animal rescues, we can create education that results in forever homes. It’s all about education.

Of course, I send people to my 10 Easy Steps to Better Communication with your Pet on my website: http://www.joanranquet.com. And truly, some of the best advise I have to admit is in my book “Communication with All Life, Revelations of an Animal Communicator”……..but for my students today, nothing can replace that experience. Thankfully, I can offer plenty of that because I haven’t mastered bi-tri or multiple relocation yet.

I’m still recovering from all of the work and teaching of recent. I had such a great time in Florida between the big workshop, a new Communication with all Life University student signing up and the Promote adoption campaign I’m doing – this minute and this minute only, I’m enjoying a slower pace!  (I personally usually love go, go, go….) More fun to come in hyperspeed in Florida in August and there’s plenty coming up here in the Seattle area. There are also Northern California and Denver  adventures ahead, and that’s just what I know about!!!   To stay updated, go to http://www.joanranquet.com/events.

I have been so blessed with my work. Today a woman had me visit her and her dog at her office. The dog was recently adopted but quite shy still and growling.

 

I got quiet, the dog (we’ll call her Sarah) Sarah and I talked about the past  a bit, yet I emphasized to her person,  not to dwell on the past. Sarah and I talked about  her purpose with the new woman and her family.  We talked about her totally integrating in the family. We talked about Sarah growling with other dogs and people.  Apparently Sarah’s trainer and I agreed that the mild (but present) growling is a form of nervousness – yet had to be quelled immediately. We talked about what to do.

Sadly, Sarah had lost her person to death over a year ago and the widow was someone Sarah was trying  to also take care of. Sarah’s growling was a matter of insecurity because she didn’t know if the new family was in danger. Imagine you believe your only job is an amazing person. They die. Their partner is grieving (a weakened position) what the heck do you do if you are the care taker? So like MOST stories, this isn’t a matter of abuse necessarily – though it can look like it – it is just misplaced grief and need for purpose.  All of this was revealed between what the woman knew of Sarah’s past and the emotional fill in information of the dog. Which also corresponded with the Bark Buster intake info.

 

Normally I work on the phone with people and their animals so I don’t always get the great pleasure of experiencing what the aftermath of a session can present. Sometimes just letting a story out and letting it go can change the course of an Animals life.  Some people remember to e-mail me the great news of the shift. Some people don’t remember! I hear about it years later in the form of a referral.

 At this gal’s office, the coworkers that also bring their dogs to work had a normal day as usual – the dogs are out and about and only Sarah was hidden away. They had tried previously to introduce the dogs with a chilly if not threatening response.

Today was fantastic. After the session, as I was wrapping up in the lobby, Sarah came out on her own and actually met all of the other dogs after three weeks of growling. It was so cute. So many dog tails wagging, it could have electrified a small village. Okay it was way moving beyond cute.  Everyone  (of all species)  was thrilled. Sarah discovered today the world is full of friends. What a great reminder for all of us.

I love my job(s).
